Want This New Innovation? Pocket Watch Terrariums

Terrariums are not a new innovation, but what you can find them housed in these days is. A company called The Slug and The Squirrel has created amazing lines of terrariums by blending the repurposing of vintage and heirloom glass pieces with creating tiny fantasy landscapes.

They create wonderful little faerie worlds out of leftover pocket watches, pendants, and other items so that you can have a bit of magic for yourself.

Each of these amazing pieces is hand made by artist Jose Agatep so that no two pieces are alike and each is filled with tiny living plants like mosses and ferns. With proper light and care these miniscule gardens can last for years without ever needing watering. Each one is guaranteed to be filled with wonder and enchantment.

It is a great, beautiful and fun way for city-dwellers to become reconnected to nature, albeit in a very teeny, weeny, itsy, bitsy way. Since good things come in small packages these gardens must be just about the best thing ever

If pocket watches aren't your thing, or you'd like a bit more acreage for your fantasy realm, the company creates a wide selection of terrarium landscapes. They also use pendants, apothecary jars, perfume bottles, and many other items to come up with these amazing pieces of living art.

Give your imagination free rein and you can almost see the fairies, elves, trolls, and hobbits inhabiting these tiny wild lands. Better yet, give your mind a chance to meditatively stroll the grounds for a bit of soul revival. Freak your friends out by saying that you were walking in your garden. This will flip them out if you live in an apartment.
